Happy Birthday, Dear Julee!



If you're arriving here from Mercy's blog, then you're right on track for the birthday hop...if you stopped by randomly, then you'll want to head over to the Verve blog for the master list which starts with Amber Hight.
I was thrilled when Amber asked me to join in the birthday blog hop for Julee! Now I'll have to tell you, the thought of creating in the company of the awesome divas was a little intimidating, but I'm such a big fan of Verve that there was no way I was going to say no. I decided to go with a tent topper card which fits into a standard A-2 envelope. The flower was colored with Copics, cut out and popped with dimensionals. It's one of my fave flowers from Julee's designs and I love the flourish in the BG that mimics the DP design.
STAMPS: Feel the Sun (flower), Big Wish (sentiment), Blessings (flourish) - all by Verve
PAPER: Bayberry Cottage (pinkpaislee), Vintage Cream, Black, Neenah Solar White
INK: Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: CB, Nestabilities dies, Fancy Tags die by Spellbinders, Satin ribbon, Oval punches (SU), Copics
From here, you'll want to hop to Amy Sheffer's blog to see the fantabulous card she has created!
Julee, I'll leave you with some birthday advice from Lucille Ball - "The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age." :-)
